• The recent US Presidential election and how the Electoral College map changed its way to elect Joe Biden for President?

      I can see why you chose that :)
  • The future. Okay, bad answer, I know... Personally, I've always been fascinated with WWI - industrialization was still in its infancy, but technology was put to the test, and the code of chivalry was still socially important enough to enough people to mean something, yet unimportant enough to enough people that some truly horrendous things were allowed to happen - so it sort of fostered in this whole good vs evil thing. And, unlike WWII, where one side of the war was much more desperate and morally bankrupt than the other side, the battle between nations in WWI was almost an entirely different battle than the battle that was raging between morals that was going on at the same time. It's almost like good won in the Allied powers and evil won in the Central powers, in a way. What about you? What's your favourite part of history?

      Well, I spend my time around WW2 most of the time, as I'm involved in a small museum. But I'm more interested in the beginnings of civilisation, often wondering where did we go wrong? I find the jump from being hunter gatherers and travellers to farming and domestication almost like having a hand in our own imprisonment. I also enjoy reading on the history of the most influential people. I spend quite a lot of time at the stone circles and long barrows, I suppose I take it for granted how much history and castles and ruins we have in the UK. I see WW1 as a lot of men sacrificed, running into things they were ill equipped to deal with. WW2 almost appears a part in developing what was the League of Nations, into what is now the United Nations.
